Weapon proficiencies are an odd sort of mechanic. They make sense and all but the randomness of what certain classes get vs what they don't is rather out there. I mean look at the bard and the rogue. I'm sure there's some sort of legacy involved in why they don't just get simple or martial weapons but it's plain nonsense to me. And their random exotic proficiencies stand out even further from the crowd since they don't get a blanket ability for martial. I mean whips? What are these bards doing in their spare time anyways?
